Scenes of displaced people and damaged buildings in San Francisco after the 1906 earthquake and fire. Original film is in need of repair, jumps and rolls out of frame.

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
More earthquake footage, but this time, by gum, they decided to you know, move the camera around! So we see more! Hoo-ray! The film is desperately slow though, especially in the beginning, where it¡¯s like the slowest 360 degree pan seen anywhere. But still, there are some charming bits in the film..Like that line.. Like that explosion, and also it appears that some parts of SF were left untouched from the fire. The rather unfortunate part of this reel is of course, is that it¡¯s wonky. The screen rolls all over the place man! Oh well, that¡¯s what you have to put up with history I suppose.
